C-60 to feature Turbo Core, higher clocks
AMD is preparing to introduce a new Fusion SKU with a rather interesting twist. The dual-core C-60 is set to lessen the gap between the C-50 and E-350, thanks to Turbo Boost support.

Like the C-50, the C-60 is clocked at 1GHz and its HD 6290 graphics core runs at 276MHz. However, with turbo the clocks can be pushed up to 1.33GHz and 400MHz for the CPU and GPU respectively, while the C-60 stays within the 9W TDP envelope.

For comparison, the E-350 runs at 1.6GHz and has a somewhat more powerful graphics core, clocked at 492MHz. However, the E-350 is an 18W part and with that in mind the C-60 looks rather impressive.

hmm, The fact that this new SKU has turbo core capability is interesting; did zacate/ontario simply have this disabled, or is this added with a new stepping of some kind? if they can add this with such apparent ease, why not add it to the mobile quads?

Quoting FlOw:

No, this is the first one. Not sure about the stepping though...

In any case it's pretty impressive considering the TDP.

You aleays test the waters before releasing the big guns. That is what AMD did in this case. Good Job to them, and the TDP is really good...

Is this supposed to be news? The C60 with turbo was already on the roadmap. Along with the E-450. The E-450 is effectivel the E-350 with turbo enabled. Both of which are already on AMD's roadmap.

This next round of chips looks like it might finally be able to do notebooks with good performance and long battery life at the same time. I'm tired of having to choose one or the other. :-)
